Eek, I've been so busy that I haven't had much time to prepare for having people over on Saturday. In a mad dash now to clean my place, plan a menu and buy everything we need (and oh yeah work and attend a Friday night party in the interim). Great googly moogly - too much to do!
So for now I'll just share some of the recipes that have caught my eye. I will most definitely not be tackling all of these, but my final decisions need to be done tonight so I have a prayer of getting ready. Here goes...
Grilled Italian Sausages and Tomatoes on Foccacia
Serrano Ham and Membrillo Crostini
Pecan Stuffed Mushrooms
Baked Feta with Marinara
Fig and Goat Cheese Crostini
Bruschetta with Ricotta and Sauteed Mushrooms
Sausage and Cheese Balls
Mascarpone stuffed dates
What to drink? We'll certainly have wine, but I keep toying with signature cocktail ideas. Thinking maybe something with prosecco, but mostly I'm stumped for now. I am sure something will come to me now that the pressure is on!
